The feature was first reported by WhatsApp tracker WABetaInfo.
WhatsApp status update: The instant messaging platform WhatsApp is said to be testing the ability to upload an image or video as a status update when sent to a recipient in a conversation. This could be an extension of the option to allow users to change the recipients of media content before sending it in chat – an update that was apparently being tested earlier this month. According to reports, the update is being tested for Android and iOS, but no timeline for it has been finalized yet, apparently.
The feature was first reported by WhatsApp tracker WABetaInfo. According to the report, it appears that when the user chooses the recipient to share the media (photo or video), they also have the option to share it in the status. In this way, it will be easier for users to share the media in the status when sending to certain contacts individually.
WABetaInfo shared a screenshot of the Android beta version of the update, indicating that a change is underway for Android, and the tracker added that the same update will also be added in a future beta version of WhatsApp for iOS.
While not much is known about the functionality yet, it appears to be something Snapchat (or at least used to) offer, where an image can be sent to individual users in their chat. In addition to downloading it as a status update at the same time. time. However, the difference is that the main feature in Snapchat was to update the status and send it to individual users was an extension, while in WhatsApp the opposite seems to be true, the main feature is to send media to many individual chats and add to it being an extension.
